In March 2013 Cura, with the help of Jicama 89, donated 18 laptop computers and 5 desktop computers to The Sibonile School for the blind. These laptops and desktops then had the necessary software installed on them to enable the learners to uses the computers through audio feedback.
The Sibonile School provides schooling, accommodation, food and clothing for 189 children, who are either partially sighted, totally blind or deaf and blind. It is apparent therefore that some of the pupils are not academic. A simple question then is what does the future of a visually impaired hold if his/her education does not provide anything in that regard? Their goal is to fully prepare the visually impaired persons for meaningful integration/inclusion in the society.
